College Tradition Awesomeness: Taylor University’s Silent Night SHARE: Tweet One of the best Finals Week traditionals in all of college sports takes place at a school you probably never knew existed. The Friday before winter finals, Taylor University students sit quietly, patient, on “Silent Night.” For the first nine points from their Trojans, they do and say nothing. Then when Taylor scores that 10th point, it’s mayhem. Controlled collegiate mayhem. When we first wrote about Taylor University’s “Silent Night” tradition back in 2010, we called it “the most awesomely geeky thing we’ve seen this week.” Somehow it seems geekier, and 100 times more awesome. Watching this footage almost makes you wish you could join these heroes at this small Christian college in Upland, Indiana — at least just for one day.
